Possible ideas to get around colored protection: Ersatz Gnomes , Slip Through Space , Unnatural Endurance , and Wrap in Vigor .

Cards to remove/rethink: Death's Presence , Artful Dodge , Distortion Strike , Aether Tunnel , Bioshift , Roalesk, Apex Hybrid .

This deck uses a TON of colored mana, and very little colorless. Consider changing your mana rocks to better reflect that. For example, Chromatic Lantern might help more than Thran Dynamo.

Seems like a fun idea. If opponents don't play creatures to prevent the win-con, swing for commander damage.

Ninjutsu isn't going to help you much since Etrata triggers on damaging a player, but the return to hand effects are smart. IMO, for this deck to work you need better evasion and better protection. Whispersilk Cloak is a 2-for-1 and should definitely be in your deck.

Evasion: I don't flying is sufficient, you need unblockable. Amphin Pathmage , Artful Dodge , Deepchannel Mentor , Distortion Strike , Glaring Spotlight , Key to the City , etc etc.

Protection: Since Etrata is a potentially fast win condition (from any one opponent's perspective), they'll gun hard for her. Swiftfoot boots is not enough. You have access to cheap 1-shot spells like Unlikely Aid and Without Weakness , or equipment ( Darksteel Plate , Hammer of Nazahn , Shield of Kaldra , etc.)

I actually have an infect deck at home. I run a lot of the same stuff, but here's some card you could consider. for the creature side I run Ichorclaw Myr and Blight Mamba both are easier to get out and blight mamba regenerates.

For Instants I run a few different ones too: Vines of Vastwood Slip Through Space Apostle's Blessing (extra protection) Artful Dodge

I've made some changes! I've rarely (if ever) been able to use the ability on Judge's Familiar . Swapping two for Siren Stormtamer , which I think will be more useful.

Slip Through Space is a great card but I mostly use it just to "cycle" really. Sometimes it's great to pull of a combo with Master of Cruelties, but most of the time I don't need it. Swapping 2 of them for Chart a Course . Might swap the other two for Artful Dodge , would be very useful to have it ready for use in the graveyard.

In with 1 Alesha, Who Smiles at Death for a Okiba-Gang Shinobi . Okiba-Gang is great, but pretty expensive even to ninjutsu in.

Lastly swapping out a swamp for Leechridden Swamp .

Sculpted the deck a bit based on suggestions. Thanks btw. :) Still wondering about options for countering, creatures ( Blight Mamba , Phyrexian Crusader , Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , Ichorclaw Myr , etc.), protecting the creatures ( Dive Down , Mizzium Skin , etc.), penetration ( Artful Dodge , etc.), boost ( Larger Than Life , Predator's Strike , more Vines of Vastwood , etc.), mana base, etc. Sideboard needs overhaul too. Phew!

Distortion Strike is in my opinion strictly better than Artful Dodge .

Faithless Looting doesn't really fit in this. Opt , or Manamorphose or more Serum Visions would be better for actual card advantage.

Stubborn Denial interacts with Kiln Fiend and Nivix, and it goes wider, might be worth testing over Dispel .

Also some fetchlands like 4x Flooded Strand s to filter your deck so you draw into better cards would help consistency.

+1 and have fun smashing face.

Artful Dodge has value even when discarded. If possible, stay away from enchantments and favor artifacts - they stay on the field after your commander dies to a boardwipe. Gift of Immortality is good for bring back Chromium, the Mutable , since he costs 7 mana, then 9 mana, so you should be careful about his destruction. Command Tower and Caves of Koilos are some cheap lands you should consider.
